the informations about the partitions can be found:

  • it is partially printed on the serial while booting
  • the information can be found in recovery/usr/share/recover/env.devault
  • env.default is used to create ubootenv0 and ubootenv1
  • to see partitions
cat /proc/mtd
cat /etc/fstab
  • mtd4,5,6,7 are always the current system kernel,rootfs,ubiqfs,database. uboot uses ubootenv0 or ubootenv1 to start systemA or systemB. Only the order of the partitions are swapped, the addresses of them stay the same. The kernel recognizes this if it is systemA or systemB using the information provided by uboot.


  • ubootenv0 and ubootenv1 are similar, only the order of the partition is different
  • alternate system is used after 3 reboot
  • systemB can be the recovery kernel or a complete system (like systemA), depending on the recovery or webupdate.
